Having some cheap and delicious banana dessert recipes helps me when I want a sweet treat. I’ve got a WOW treat you’re going to love. All you need is a few ingredients to make this possible, but don’t get down if you don’t have pure maple syrup. I’ve got some alternatives you can use.
Bananas are naturally sweet, or course, but when you put them under the broiler they get even sweeter! If you want to just try water, that’s fine too!
Don’t Have Pure Maple Syrup?
Try these alternatives, they work!
- Just use a little water
- Fake maple syrup
- Agave nectar
- Simple Syrup (dissolve equal parts water and sugar)
Step 1: Prep Banana
Wash the banana first to get any dirt off of it. Then, cut the ends up and slice it down the middle like a hot dog bun. Place the bananas on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Step 2: Drizzle With Maple Syrup
Carefully drizzle each banana slice with a little maple syrup. Use your finger, or a pastry brush to spread the syrup over all of the banana.
Step 3: Flavor Them Up!
We like to top ours with cinnamon or cocoa powder. A little goes a long ways, so keep it to just a sprinkle. Spread the powder around with your finger if you need to.
Step 4: Time To Broil
Place your bananas under the broiler (LOW BROIL) for about 6 minutes. Keep your eye on them, so they don’t burn.
Top with berries, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, a little chocolate sauce and enjoy! These would also be delicious accompanied with waffles or pancakes, yogurt, and even ice cream. There’s so many options when it comes to making banana desserts!
